DMBLGIT February 2012: The Winners

Before I announce the winners of DMBLGIT Februry 2012 edition, I’d like to apology for the delay. Things came up on the way that consume more time in completing the score. Deeply sorry 🙂

I really had so much in hosting DMBLGIT and it doubled by judging as well. The experience I got by working with some talented food blogger and photographers is priceless, something that I cannot buy nor find anywhere. Thanks a lot to Dwiana Porter, Leemei Tan, Meeta K. Wollf and Monika Topolko for your time and expertise in judging all beautiful 46 entries. I know it was not an easy works, but you ladies had done a very good job. Salut!

My gratitude also goes to Andrew Barrow who gave me the opportunity to host again and to my good friend Shari of Whisk: a foo blog who send me the winner badges right after I announced the event.
